[K12OSN] Fonts printing wrong

I have a K12LTSP 5.0 installation, and this morning, I have a printer  
that is not rendering fonts correctly.  Even the cups test page  
prints "like the fonts are printed with an old dot matrix printer"

To add great difficulty to the situation, I'm not physically onsite,  
so I can SSH in, or use VNC over my VPN, but I can't look at the  
printouts.  I'm not even sure if other printers are doing it.  (not  
being there really makes troubleshooting rough)

Does this sound remotely familiar to anyone?  I tried simple things  
like restarting the cups service, but that didn't do anything useful.

Any suggestions?
